“Not just a great Valley but a shrine to human foresight, strength of granite, power of glaciers, the persistence of life, and the tranquility of the High Sierra.
Yosemite National Park, one of the first wilderness parks in the United States, is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more.” -nps.gov
All of this is what keeps me coming back to Yosemite every year. This park has stunning as it’s middle name, every single foot in this park is incredible and should be cherished. As soon we were entering the park we saw a deer, hence the need for signs along the road cautioning drivers for deers. (We didn’t get to see a bear but between you and me I’m ok with that.)
The fourth photo down is a picture of my photographer slash handsome boyfriend =). He let me take a few shots of him for once and I don’t think I do too bad, what do you think? The only hiking we did this time around was trying to get closer to the waterfalls. A lot of fun but very wet and very slippery so a good pair of sneakers are a must. I don’t know if you noticed in the last photo that I am in the bottom corner and all of the white in the air is mist coming from the falls.
Yosemite is a place you must visit in your lifetime whether you are going for a day or camping for a week it truly is one of the great wonders of our world.
Have you been to Yosemite before? I would love to hear about your experience.
